Hello there, Belovelies! Inspired by a recent post by Petapixels re Creativity, we thought we would put out a slightly revised version for you – just for the fun of it!

Summer can be SO, SO, SO busy for most of us that we need to make sure that we have a play break now and again :)

Mostly, we just love to PLAY and this is another excuse to do so. Plus, PLAY is the best way to get those creativity juices flowing, imho ;)

If you’re up for it, we’d love for you to not only post your imagery, but share with us about your exploration, what opened up for you, what you saw differently, what it felt like and what discoveries have come about because of your “playing around”.

As a special incentive, there will be weekly giveaways based on uniqueness and playfulness of the imagery, plus sharing of your ideas/thoughts/discoveries. [Please note: The Beloved Team will be able to participate, but not be eligible for the prizes :( ]

SO, a few rules to consider:

Rule number 1: PLAY!


Rule number 2: No judgments, criticism allowed. Just as we learn to give space to our muses, create that same beautiful space for yourself; enjoy and just be your beautiful self! Explore, adventure, imagine! This is an opportunity to let your creativity flow.


Rule 3: Take a break from what you've tried in the past, leave your personal "fear folders" far away! No limits (well, maybe a few as we don't want our Facebook Group page to be banned ;).

A few things to remember if you wish to win a PRIZE:

You may post every day, ONCE a day ;) on the Facebook Group page as well as on your own pages so that others can see what fun you’re having. But PLEASE remember to use the hashtag #playbreak so we can find you! And PLEASE remember to share your ideas/thoughts/discoveries to ensure your eligibility.

[ALSO, big note about giving credit to Petapixel for jumpstarting this creative endeavor.]

START DATE: Saturday, July 18th, 2015. And GO!

Week 1: Jesh has been known to say that there is a whole world within a 10 foot radius of where you are standing: so your challenge is to stand in one spot and make 24 unique photographs while standing in the same place. You cannot move your feet! What can you find that is beloved about the images you took? and why? what is beloved right where you are?
